Benefits of Office 365

If you are wondering if you need Office 365, we have created a list of the benefits that Office 365 delivers to businesses, large and small.

Work Anywhere

One of the main benefits of Office 365 is the capability to work from anywhere as long as you have internet connectivity. Because it’s entirely cloud-based, email, files and Office programs can be accessed from any location and any device. You can create, edit, and share from your PC, Mac or your iOS, Android, or Windows device with anyone in real time. This is particularly beneficial for companies with multiple locations, remote employees or employees who travel often.

Scalability

Office 365 gives you flexibility to scale your business quickly as it can grow with you. Businesses have the ability to mix and match apps to create your own custom solution for each user or department.

Collaboration

Everyone who needs to contribute to or edit a document can work on the same version (and get real-time changes) rather than having multiple copies. Versioning is also included in case you need to go to back to an older version. With multi-party HD video, shared calendars and team chat, team members will always be in sync.

Reduce Costs

Office 365 is a subscription-based service, which means you pay an annual or monthly fee per user. It eliminates the large up-front costs for new software, you’re essentially leasing vs. buying. This also moves IT costs from capital to operating expenses.

Advanced Security

A common misconception about the cloud is that it’s not secure. However, in reality, it isn’t necessarily any more or less safe than an on premise system. It’s all in how you use it and what security measures you put in place.

Office 365 has a lot of built in security features to keep your company’s data safe. Some of most notable include: Message Encryption, Advanced Threat Analytics, Mobile Device Management and Data Loss Prevention.
